-CONTACTLESS. HAVE MY OWN MASK. IMMUNOCOMPRIMISED.- I've had the pleasure of taking care of all sorts of breeds, and special needs pups, young and old. I normally carry some of my own stuff with me, like treats and leads, etc. So if you happen to be missing something, it shouldn't be a problem. I have no problem cleaning up after dogs, and if they need something special, I can take care of it. -A little note, because I am a small woman, I do have someone walking with me to be safe.-

My name is Melissa, and I'm a huge dog and pet lover. I grew up with a dog most of my life, and even though I don't currently own a dog I try to be around dogs as much as I possibly can! I work as a Stage Manager in the theatre, and luckily this allows me to be around dogs quite a bit as many people I work with tend to bring their dogs into the theatre. When I'm not at work I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and spending time with my partner and feisty cat named Sriracha.

Dog Walking in Knox

Knox is a charming small town nestled between farms and more urban areas of upstate New York. Visitors will love the fresh air, and canine visitors will love it even more: there’s always something fresh to sniff in the air of a smaller town! Knox itself doesn’t boast its own veterinary clinic, though there’s no shortage of demand in the area: there are a dozen in the county, just none within Knox’s narrow city limits.


Perky pups can visit Knox Town Park in the heart of Knox for on leash walks and fun. Beaverdam Creek cuts through the park, so dogs can splash into cool off on a hot day. Just remember to bring your own doggie bowl, because all the water fountains here are made for someone human height!


If longer walks are where it’s at for your high energy dog, consider heading to Margaret Burke Wildlife Management Area. This Knox-based park is a great treat for dogs who love to sniff! New York’s natural wildlife is carefully cultivated here, protected, and full of wild game--so keep your pup on leash for everyone’s safety. Knox is a beautiful treat for city dogs and country pups alike--and their owners, too!
